"there is only one machine".

We are in the process of blanketing our planet with billions of networked sensors and actuators.

These devices are embedded in consumer products, industrial systems, and the built and natural environment.

Once connected to each other, and to us, they will fundamentally transform our planet by acting as a single, distributed entity. This "one machine" will reshape social interactions, market dynamics, and "nature" itself.
Marshall Mcluhan

"...by means of electric media, we set up a dynamic by which all previous technologies -- including cities -- will be translated into information systems"

"In the next century, planet earth will don an electronic skin. It will use the Internet as a scaffold to support and transmit its sensations."

Neil Gross
1999

"Ubiquitous computing is roughly the opposite of virtual reality,"Where virtual reality puts people inside a computer-generated world, ubiquitous computing forces the computer to live out here in the world with people."
